    Eh, he was a pipe dream for us at best. I'm at least feeling content now with our corps of Hobbs, Wheatley, Wilhite, and O'Neal. I'm not overly pleased but just... content.

    That's a very good deal for Atlanta!

    Now, not only is Denver's "pass rush" suspect, but they've gotten rid of their best nickel back.

    And for what?

    A 7th rounder!!!!

    But its a high 7th rounder. Practically a 6th.

    Perhaps the Patriots should have offered a low 6th rounder, practically a 7th.

    What ever happened to Dante Wesley or did he suck and get cut last year?

    Another thing that surprises me is that the Pats did not try and grab Travis Daniels from the Dolphins before Cleveland landed him in a deal

    That suprised me as well. The only thing that I think stopped the Pats are the injury concerns. Guy is loaded with talent and his a ballhawk as well as a hard hitter. The only bad thing is that he's oft-injured.

    I have no info regarding Dyson,Fred Thomas or Kelly Herndon - Are they still on the market or are they injured?

    No clue actually. All I knew of was Travis Daniels and how bad I wanted the Pats to sign him. I'm sure someone else around here much more up on the free agent maket than I am knows.

    No F'n way - A 7th?? that can't be right. Shanahan is an idiot. I guess he just wanted Foxworth out of the conference but please... that's just giving away a good player.

    To my knowledge all three of those players did not attend training camp for any team this season and are all still unsigned.

    Wow. Disappointing we couldn't have made more of a run at him. I gladly would have given up a 6th round pick to bring him in.

    Probably a numbers game. We have five CBs already, and BB might not have rated Foxworth any higher than Sanders. A 6th rounder is nothing special, but spending it on a lateral move wouldn't make much sense either.

    It would be like trading a 6th rounder for another teams 3rd running back right now. Probably a good value for the player, but is it necessary given our situation?

    Or it could be this, why only a conditional pick between 5th and 7th Rd:

    I have Denver going in the tank big time this year. Shanny fired his coordinators routinely and this past year he fired the GM! Its all up to him now, and with Cutler's health problems, Marshall's psychy, and a problem with the run D I have them drafting in the top 4 spots next April.

    So why did they trade a middle-aged mustachioed comedian to the Falcons? I didn't even know the dude could play football.

    Oh. Wait. I read that too fast. Never mind.
